Dr. Roozehra Khan, otherwise known as The Female Doc, has been a critical care attending physician for four years with a special interest in critical care ultrasound, neuro-critical care, burnout and workplace gender dynamics. She is also an osteopathic physician, and has been a national speaker on topics including women in medicine, and contract negotiation strategies. Outside of medicine, Dr. Khan likes to blog, golf, and travel.
Dr. Khan has stood out as an exceptional thought leader among females in medicine, and she writes about this and many other topics on her popular blog The Female Doc. In her own words:
"Oddly, my favorite thing about work is my relationship and comfort with death and the dying process. I feel that it helps me connect with my patients. My biggest challenge was overcoming my early career burnout in fellowship. Finding love and respect for my critical care specialty took a lot of self reflection, but I made it back around."
